15 month appointment

A had a doctor's appointment today. We got to see my favorite doctor of those we've met so far.
Everything is on track, although he did mention that A's not walking is a possible developmental delay... it's not a concern, though, because he IS trying.... we'll see what happens in three months, though.

He weighs 23.54 lbs, which is the 30% (up from the 5th at 12 months), and 30.71 inches, also the 30%. His head circ is the 40th percentile, so he's really proportional.

We also asked the doctor to take a look at the "barking" cough A has been waking in the middle of the night with. He believes that A has Croup, which is worse at night--exactly what we have been experiencing here. He also noted that A has some fluid in his ears... yep, only 2 months in daycare, and it looks like A might be on his way to his first ear infection. As a result, A didn't get his shots... the doctor suggested we get them in a month when he is due for his second flu shot anyway. He indicated that it is better to get three shots at once than to have him get his shots today with these other problems.

Either way, he seems to be in great spirits... except when he's on the changing table (for us only.) M noted at daycare that A doesn't scream or flip or anything that he does for us. How nice.

YAY for A! I am with you on the changing thing! I actually haven't changed them on the table in weeks!

A sounds like he is built like William, who is 24 lbs 12 oz and 31.5 inches. He is a little squirt, but kind of "stocky." Daniel is 25 lbs, 8 oz and 33 inches!!! He is SO tall!

Daniel has only been walking for about a month now. He was trying for so long and then BAM, he up and WALKED a week after Emily came home!

They are growing SO FAST, aren't they?

YES!!! A is back on top!!! He was born the heaviest of the three and now he's back to the top of the pile!! Good going A! (and mommy and daddy too!)

sorry about the ear infection, they stink.

A will be walking in no time. Especially since he's already taking steps. I bet he'll just start walking around the room like he's been doing it for years.
